Water Quality Issues in Developing Countries
Working Paper #53
This chapter looks at the current status of water access for households in developing countries, the consequences of the poor condition of the water they receive and the way they dispose of water effluent. It also looks at other uses of water, which are not picked up in the MDGs, but which may, nevertheless, be important to local communities in developing countries. These include inland rivers and lakes, as well as some coastal zones.
